Gangs of टीम इंडिया (Team India)

In the first week of August, this year, i saw Gustakhi Maaf in NDTV News. It was on Anna Hazare, Baba Ramdev,Arvind Kejriwal and UPA Government.The Story was based on Gangs of Wasseypur-II promo.I quiet liked the Idea. So when on last saturday during T20 WC, i got GOW Combo and was watching GOW marathon , this idea came into my mind. What if i replace the Gangs of Wasseypur characters with Indian players.

Cricketers jo hain ,bas do nashal ke hote hain Ek hote hain Batsman aur dusre bowler. Aur yeh saara khel inn dono kaa hi hain . Ab kab koi Batsman bowler ban jata hain aur kab koi bowler six lagane lagta hain yeh pata hi nahi chalta. Iss Team India ki kahani thodi thedi hain ,bahaar se dekho to ek se badh k eek players bhade pare hain iss team me , lekin ander se dekho to naa koi dhang kaa Batsman hain naa bowler. woh career kea ant me kya shabhit hote hain yeh alag baat hain lekin khelte time tak sabhi apne aap ko phaann khan hi samajhte the .

[Cricketers जो हैं , बस दो नस्सल के होते हैं . एक होते हैं Batsman और दूसरे  Bowler…और यह सारा खेल इन् दोनों  का ही हैं . अब कब कोई Batsman ,bowler बन जाता हैं और कब कोई  bowler छक्के लगाने लगता हैं , यह पता ही नहीं  चलता . इस टीम  इंडिया  की कहानी  थोड़ी  थेडी हैं , बाहर से देखो तो एक से बढ़ के एक players  भड़े  पड़े हैं इस  टीम मे , लेकिन अन्दर  से देखो तो ना  कोई ढंग  Batsman हैं , ना  कोई bowler . वोह करियर के अंत में क्या साबित होते हैं यह अलग बात हैं लेकिन खेलते टाइम तक सभी अपने आप को  फ्न्न खान ही समझते थे]

13th Mar 1996, Eden Garden, Kolkata

Har haar ki Wajah hum bhagwaan ko nhi bana sakte ,Jeet kabhi khud ke acche khelne se aati hain ,kabhi luck se lekin haar hamesha bura khelne se aati hain . Galti Azhar ki nahi thi jo usne pehle Bowling opt kiya , Galti Team India ke players kit hi jo bowl turn hone pe 5 over bhi thik kar nahi khel sake.

हर हार की वजह हम भगवान् को नही बना सकते . जीत कभी खुद के अच्छे खेलने से होती हैं , कभी Luck से। लेकिन हार हमेशा बुरा खेलने से होती हैं . गलती अजहर की नही थी जो उसने पहले bowling लिया ,गलती टीम इंडिया के players की थी , जो ball turn होने पे 5 over भी टीक कर नही खेल सके

And Srilanka Won the World Cup…..

Sourav Ganguly– Iss Srilanka ko ek ke baad ek cup lete dekha nhi jata. Iss Srilanka ko hame harana hain .Khali Haarayenge nhi usko, kisi tournament ke final me bhi pahuchne nhi denge usko.Usse uski aaukat baatayenge aur phir dheere dheere khud hi haar jayenge yeh Raavan saare.

इस श्रीलंका को एक के बाद एक कप लेते देखा नही जाता .इस श्रीलंका को हमे हराना हें . खाली हरायेंगे नही उसको , किसी tournament के final मे भी पहुचने नही देंगे उसको . उसको उसकी औकात बतायेंगे और फिर धीरे धीरे खुद ही हार जायेंगे रावण सारे

And then he formed a team with Sachin Tendulkar and Anil Kumble. One day while reading the Newpaper, Ganguly said

Ganguly-thoda Colombo ho ke aaya jaye kya?[थोड़ा कोलोम्बो हो आया जाये क्या ]

Sachin “Haan”

And then Sachin, Sourav and Kumble reached Colombo.

19th Jun 1998, Colombo

Sachin to Srilankan bowler “Abe Sun, jara batting  kara” [
अबे सुन , जरा batting करा  ]

Srilankan Bowler “Batting kahan kari sarkar, batting to haiye nahi baa…pahile bowling kare ke pari” [Batting कहाँ करी सरकार , Batting ट हैं ये नहीं बा …..पहिले bowling करे के परी ]

Sourav to another player “Ketna run banaye ke pari “[
केतना रन बनाये के पड़ी ?]

“244 , uho 50 over me “[“244, उहो 50 ओवर मे “]

Sourav-“244, kasam se “[244, कसम से ?]

“Haan”

Ganguly to his team “Ae, 244 run banaye ke pari “[ऐ ,244 रन बनाये के पड़ी]

And then Sachin and Sourav started the Run chase.Sachin got out after scoring 65 runs in quick time.

Kumble to Jadeja “Ka Jadeja, Kismat jabar hain tumhati, accha start mil gya hain , Are jao kuch run tum bhi banao. Are banao”[
का जडेजा ? किस्मत जबर हैं तुम्हारी , अच्छा start मिल गया हैं .अरे जाओ कुछ रन तुम भी बनाओ , अरे बनाओ ]

Ganguly got out after scoring 80 and when the score was 211.

Sachin to  Ganguly ““Are jeeta diye kya tum”[अरे ,जीता दिये क्या तुम ?]

Ganguly- Pata nahi

And India won the match.

Sachin “Jeet gye jeet gye”

Sourav “Hum Man of the Match , hum Man of th Match”

And then India started winning some games against Srilanka…..

World Cup 99, 26th May….

And When Ganguly came with Sachin and Kumble in the World Cup , srilankan sensed the revenge in Ganguly’s eyes.

Murlidharan to Ganguly “E cup hamara hain “[इ कप हमारा हैं]

Ganguly- “Aapka hain to le jaiye “[आपका हैं तो ल़े जाइये ]

Murlidharan “Tumhe pata hain hamare saamne aaukat kya hain teri” [तुम्हे पता हैं हमारे सामने औकात क्या हैं तेरी ]

Sourav responded with a six.

“Ab to hum bhi lenge ek do wicket” Kumble grinned and took few wickets.

India won and due to that Srilanka lost the berth in semi-finals but India too got out of the WC in super six round.

Natwest Series 2002 ….

Ganguly to England- “Kaa Pehalwaan, kaa haal chaal ?”[ का पहलवान , का हाल चाल ?]

England-“Chal bhaag yahaan se”[ चल भाग यहाँ से ]

After eliminating Srilanka in the league matches ,India started chasing 327 in the Final ,India started their quick run chase.

Ganguly- “Jeeta…? Nahi Jeeta?……..Ab ?”[ जीता ..?नहीं जीता ….?अब।।।?]

Once India won the match over England , Ganguly came out of the dressing room ,took off his t-shirt and started waving his t-shirt in the air , just to glorify his win.

Natwest trophy jeetne ke baad Team India kaa Varchaswa sabhi jagah hone laga.

नेटवेस्ट ट्राफी जीतने के बाद टीम इंडिया का वर्चस्व सभी जगह होने लगा

Just before World Cup 2003, Ganguly to Selector “I need Nehra in the Team for the World Cup”

Selector “ Are nahi, His fitness is not good .

Selector “Woh 5 over bowling karne ke baad phatt ke flower ho jaata hain “[वोह 5 ओवर bowling के बाद फट के फ्लावेर हो जाता हैं]

After checking Dravid’s Wicket keeping skill , Ganguly to Sachin

“Kaa, Sachin, Rakh lein issko Wicketkeeper-Batsman role me team me ?”[ का ,सचिन ..रख ले इसको को Wicketkeeper-Batsman की तरह टीम में ?]

Sachin “Haan”

And then India started their World Cup 2003 campaign,

WorldCup 2003…..

Kasamon me sabse badi kasam hain , Kasam Paida karne wale ki
Maine yeh Kasam li hain aur jaan de ke bhi yeh Nibhaunga

O beraham! Tune kiye
Kya kya zulumm, Kya kya sitam
Tujhko bhi na, Chhodenge hum
Kasam paida karne waale ki!!

Ganguly “ Hazraat, hazraat, hazraat.Agle 6 week me yahan itna Six lagayenge ki Srilanka wale balls collect karte karte ameer ho jayenge”

India defeated Srilanka by a handsome margin of more than 175 runs and due to this heavy loss Srilankan team miss Semifinal Berth and Team India reached Final.But Ganguly’s dream got shattered by Ricky Ponting and Team, when they thrashed India in the Final and won the worldcup and slowly slowly Ganguly went into backstage.

इस श्रीलंका को एक के बाद एक कप लेते देखा नही जाता .इस श्रीलंका को हमे हराना हें . खाली हरायेंगे नही उसको , किसी tournament के final मे भी पहुचने नही देंगे उसको . उसको उसकी औकात बतायेंगे और फिर धीरे धीरे खुद ही हार जायेंगे रावण सारे

Dravid took the baton of Team India .In the initial phase ,he got some moderate success too but again in World Cup 2007 Bangladesh and Srilanka defeated india and India was out of the World Cup in the very preliminary stage.
The dream of winning the World Cup Shattered again.

When Dravid resigned from the Job of Leading the Team. Selectors were discussing different option. One selector to another
“Humko to nhi lagta, woh kuch kar payega, usko apne lambe baal thik karne se fursat kahan hain “[ हमको तो नही लगता कि वो कुछ कर पायेगा ,उसको अपने लम्बे बाल ठीक करने से फुर्सत कहाँ है ]

Dhoni was roaming nearby. Selector to Dhoni “Tera Khoon kab khaulega re. Kab lega 2003 aur 2007 ke haar kaa badla. “[तेरा खून कब खौलेगा रे ..कब लेगा 2003 और 2007 के हार का बदला ]

Dhoni tried to consoled them.
Dhoni – “96 kaa, 2003 kaa, 2007 kaa , Sab kaa Badla lega tera e Dhoni”[96 का , 2003 का , 2007 का, सब का बदला लेगा तेरा इ धोनी ]

And then during ICC T20, 2007, Dhoni to Mis-Bah-ul Haq”Sab log mazaak udate hain , kehte hain Dhoni style ke chakkar me 2007 kaa world cup harwa diya.Hum toh sochte the ki Sanjeev Kumar ke ghar pe hum bacchan paida hue hain , lekin aankh khuli to pata chala ki hum to Shashi Kapoor hain , Bacchan to koi aure hain”[सब लोग मज़ाक उड़ाते हैं, कहते हैं धोनी स्टाइल के चक्कर में 2007 का वर्ल्ड कप हरवा दिया .हम तो सोचते थे की संजीव कुमार के घर पे हम बच्चन पैदा हुए हैं ,लेकिन आँख खुली तो देखा की की हम तो शशी कपूर हैं , इ बच्चन तो कोई औरे हैं]

And then Dhoni ruthlessly took revenge from Pakistan and India became the first nation to win the T20 World Cup

Jis tarah se Dhoni ne T20 worldcup jeeta tha , log uski team se darne lage the. Ab jahan bhi T20 hota , sabse pehle Dhoni ko yaad kiya jata tha.

जिस तरह से धोनी ने T 20 वर्ल्ड कप जीता था , लोग उसकी टीम से डरने लगे थे अब जहाँ भी T 20 होता ,सबसे पहले धोनी को याद किया जाता था

Dhoni to Srilankan ” Hum Kasam khaye hain, Aapko Final me hara ke World Cup jeetenge “[हम कसम खाए हैं , आपको फ़ाइनल में हरा के वर्ल्ड कप जीतेंगे ]
Srilanka “Kahe bhai?”
Dhoni – “Kahe ki aapne humko 2007 me haraya…….Kahe ki aapne humko 96 me haraya”[काहे की आपने हमको 2007 में हराया …..कहे की आपने हमको 96 में हराया ]
Srilanka-“Saari Kahani 96 se to suru hui hain.Ab hum naa harate to tum hame hara dete. Ab Bewajah haarna kaun chahta hain ”
Dhoni “Kaa chahte hain ” [का चाहते हैं ?]
Srilanka- “Aisa karo T20 pe raaj tumhara. Jitna paisa banana hain banao , match jeeto, ad karo , hamare players tumhare saamne nhi aayenge. Aur 50 Over me jab hum log jeete to tumhe bhi bura nhi manna chahiye”

Later on Dhoni Won 2-3 series.
Virendra Sehwaag uff Viru uff Nafajgarh ke Nawab Sourav Ganguly kaa ek aur khoj tha. Dekhne me bilkul bhi nhi lagta tha ki woh batting kar sakta hain, lekin batting uske liye baccho kaa khel tha. Bina footwork ke , Nafajhgarh kaa yeh Nawab aise aise shots marta tha ki virodhi players ke paseene nikal jaate the

वीरेंद सहवाग उर्फ्फ़ वीरू उर्फ्फ़ नफजगढ़ के नवाब , सौरव गांगुली का एक और खोज . देखने में बिलकुल भी नही लगता था की वो batting कर सकता हैं , लेकिन Batting उसके लिए बच्चों का खेल था . बिना footwork के,नफजगढ़ का यह नवाब ऐसे ऐसे शोट्स मरता था की विरोधी players के पसीने निकल जाते थे

“Hmra naam Virendra Sehwaag hain , MS Dhoni hamare captain hain , hum tum bowlers ko nani yaad dilane aaye hai”[हमरा नाम वीरेंद्र सहवाग हैं , MS Dhoni हमारे captain है , हम तुम bowlers को नानी याद दिलाने आये हैं ]

And Sehwaag scored lot and lots of run against world class bowlers.

Dhoni aur Sehwaag ek hi team ke the, kitne roj team me ander baahar hote rehte the , lekin sabse khatarnak tha Yuvraj Singh

धोनी और सहवाग एक ही टीम के थे . कितने रोज टीम से अंदर बाहर होते रहते थे। लेकिन सबसे खतरनाक था युवराज सिंह

Sehwaag to Yuvraaj “Kya karna hain ? Tu 50 over me 200 run akele banayega”[क्या करना हैं ? तू 50 ओवर में 200 रन अकेले बनाएगा ]
Yuvraaj- “Nhi to kaa, aise shart lagaye hain ?”[नही तो का , ऐसे ही शर्त लगाये हैं ]
Bhajji – “Bahut Badka Bokraat hain, 20 baari kar chuka hain , pehle 15 over me maar maar ke century lagayega, phir aaram se 200 banayega” [बहुत बड़का बोकरात हैं , 20 बारी कर चूका हैं , पहले 15 ओवर में मार मार के century लगाएगा , फिर आराम से 200 बनाएगा ]
Sehwaag- “Nhi , to pehle hum jayenge”
Yuvraaj ” Ab to tum technique jaan gya”

Sehwaag tried to score quickly in first 15 overs and got out in the very first over.

Cricket me bander baant chal raha tha. T20 World Cup ki dekha dekhi , IPL suru ho gya . Phir kya tha , Dinn Raat Cricket, paisa aur IPL Parties

Cricket में बन्दर बाँट चल रहा था . T 20 वर्ल्ड कप की देखा देखी , IPL शुरू हो गया . फिर क्या था , दिन -रात Cricket , पैसा और IPL Parties

Later on , Bowlers found few tricks to get ride of Sehwaag and India too lost 2 T20 World Cups. But with the help of Yuvraj Singh, Gambhir and Raina , Dhoni continued to rule World Cricket.

World Cup 2011…
QF against Srilanka

While chasing 250 plus , India were 165/5 at one time.
Yuvraaj- “Lagta hain , haar jayenge”
Gambhir – “e salmaan khan kaa body le ke bekaare ghumta hain , lagao 2-3 chakka, chukaa”[इ सलमान खान का बॉडी ले के बेकारे घूमता हैं , लगाओ 2-3 छक्का , चौका ]

And when Breet lee bowled few short deliveries, Yuvraj hit those for boundaries and took Revenge from Australia for all the previous losses. Once India won the SF against Pakistan,it was clear that Dhoni will go for kill against Srilanka.

In the Final Match
Dhoni to Yuvraaj and Gambhir – “koi match nhi jeetwayega, Iss Srilanka ki haar me ek ek shot mera hona chahiye ”
Dhoni came to bat before Yuvraaj and started scoring the run quickly. He took away the game from Srilanka, scored 85 run and when 6 run was required….. And Then………….
Dhoni hit the World Cup winning Six…

Urban Shots – The Love Collection

Visit blogadda.com to discover Indian blogs
Short stories always fascinate me. They are short, they are crisp, they are incisive, they are situation driven and not character driven and most importantly they remains with you for long time.
Remember the Bollywood movie, “Dus Kahaniyaan” ? I still believe , it was one of the most crafted efforts from 10 directors under Sanjay Gupta’s banner . The story about bickering couple and Nana Patekar in “Gubbare” or Story of a staunch Brahmin lady Shabana Aazmi and Naseeruddin Shah as muslim in “Rice Plate” are still few of the best cinematic moments, I even saw in Indian Cinema.

So when I heard about the book “Urban Shots – The Love Collection “ , 31 Love stories by 27 authors , I couldn’t resist my temptation to read it . And to my pleasant surprise “Blog Adda “ team was gracious enough to give me the chance to review the book. (Yes, they send the book to me for review  , and that too on their own cost) .
Love is universal , yet in this one word lies a myriad of emotions ranging from happiness to anger to jealousy to possessiveness to sorrow to calmness and the book tries to cover all these different emotions .

In fact the cover page of the book featuring “Kainaz Motivala” of “Ragini MMS” fame, tries to capture few of those variegated emotions.

Love is not always dreamy. It is not always like a bollywood movie. And much as we would like to argue, in real life, it is not always depressive and unyielding.This book does well to explore the many shades, including the greys, of love and compile them in neatly.For this, the editor and the various authors deserve a proud pat on the their back.

Love here isn’t like “and they lived happily ever after” way, but more like “they learnt to accept love  or lack of it”. These stories are not about rich men finding love between board meetings. They aren’t about post-teen crushes or juvenile puppy love. They are about people who live in our midst.They cover excitement, anticipation, pertinent questions, betrayal, coquettery, starstruck love, love that just happens by chance, separation, finding lost love and other such emotions of love.

Be it a story of TMS , who heavily relies on astrology and found his soul mate in “Written in the Stars” , or  of  Aaliya , who tried to be practical , found a cruel fate waiting for her in “Rishta” or of Prashant , who realizes the altogether different line of thought in  “For Convenience’s sake ” or story of 50 plus Bibhupada in “The GirlFriend“, the stories are as different as their writers .

There is Supernatural powers in the story of Abhay and Kavita in “Strangers” ,a poignant tale of love that believes in the moment in You’re Mine , “Closure” a very practical end to a relationship that was heading nowhere , “The Jhalmuri Seller” played a important role in the future of Aslam and Rehaana and “High Time” , hilarious play of words and expressions that turn the tables over the aunts who was pestering the family for the hand of the eligible son for her extremely eligible daughter.

Sleepless by Night” oscillates from one story to another , “Reality Bytes“  and “Love is Blind” has heart-breaking ending , “Beyond Reasonable Doubt” tells the tale of betrayal and subsequent mistrust that nearly ruins the relationship.

There is a deep inner conflict in “Sahana or Shamim” ,immeasurable regret in “The Last Look”. “A Good Day” keeps increasing the heart beats till the final words.“My Familiar” drops subtle hints at the love that tends to run its course after some time and the loyalty of either partner seems questionable

My personal favorite are “A Simple Question”  and “Coffee“, story of  independent individuals, series of events and the Unexpected end .The reader wants to know more about the key characters but the sudden ends of these stories leave a lot to the reader’s imagination.

The book works because it is about Love , the most experienced emotion and also because of just like a rainbow, it has different colors and shades .  Love is universal, yet to most who devote all their senses to its pursuit, it remains elusive and the theory of  elusiveness has been researched and analysed by many in their own ways  in this book  just like Monalisa’s painting.

Only thing which is let down in the book is that,we all have heard ,seen or experienced  similar stories before and not a single story will surprise you. May be this is due to the closeness of story to the realityand present time.The contemporary touch and feel in each story keeps tugging at your heart strings.

Grab a copy of this Book . Your Book shelf needs a book , which is real still breezy read, which has no motivational or larger than life poignant moment, still stays with you , where there is no continuity worry and each story takes you through a different thought process.
